Ok, this is getting way too much for me:) Guess i will check out
on them(PCGI & LocalFS) when i have 'mastered' the basics of Zope.

Reading from the Qube website, i think they are running another benchmark
again(this time comparing Apache+PHP and AOLServer+PHP). This would give a
clearer picture on the performance of each appserver/webserver handling
dynamic content.

Wow, somehow there seems to be so many features offered by Zope(ZEO, Zwiki,
PTK, etc...) - all these jargons; i will certainly check them out:)
